Discover our new restaurants below...

Binks Yard

Named after Henry Binks, a Victorian beer retailer who worked around the original Island site, Binks Yard is our all day dining, drinking and entertainment venue. Inside, we’re serving craft beer, real ales and food that is grilled, cured and wood fired, and outside there’ll be live performances and events.

Cleaver & Wake

Named after two Victorian lace dressers who worked on the edge of the original site, Cleaver & Wake serves refined dishes using the best meat, fish and veg from across the British Isles. Led by Chef Laurence Henry, winner of MasterChef: The Professionals in 2018, this restaurant offers a modern, elevated dining experience.
“We can’t wait to share this exciting vision with the people of Nottingham and beyond when we open our doors. There is an extensive recruitment programme underway to fill a number of roles for both venues.”
